Arch Linux uses a 2-tier mirroring scheme. Tier 1 mirrors sync directly from archlinux.org every hour and all other mirrors sync from one of the tier 1 mirrors. Syncing from archlinux.org is not allowed.
For a guide on how to select and configure mirrors for your [[pacman]] installation, see [[Mirrors]].
== Communication ==
The [https://mailman.archlinux.org/mailman/listinfo/arch-mirrors arch-mirrors] mailing list is used for announcements and mirror-related communications. All mirror-administrators and Arch Linux developers involved in mirroring subscribe to this mailing list.
== How to create a official Arch Linux mirror ==
{{Note|{{pkg|pacman-mirrorlist}} only includes ftp URLs if no http URLs are available in a given country.}}
{{Warning|We are '''not''' accepting new ftp mirrors.}}
Anyone who wishes to have a public Arch Linux mirror made a official mirror should:
=== Conform with requirements ===
Your mirror must conform with the mirror-requirements for the tier you wish your mirror to belong to.
==== Tier 2 requirements ====
* Disk-space >= 35 GB
* Sync all contents of the upstream mirror (i.e. do not sync only some repositories)
* Do not sync more often than every hour
* Use the following [[rsync]] options: '''-rtlvH --delete-after --delay-updates --safe-links --max-delete=1000'''
* Subscribe to [https://mailman.archlinux.org/mailman/listinfo/arch-mirrors arch-mirrors]
* http support
==== Tier 1 requirements ====
* Tier 2 requirements
* Bandwidth >= 100Mbit/s
* [[rsync]] support
=== Create a feature-request ===
Go to https://bugs.archlinux.org and create a feature-request (category: mirrors) containing the following information:
* Mirror domain name
* Geographical location of the mirror (country)
* Supported access methods (http, [[rsync]])
* URLs for the above access methods
* The name of tier 1 mirror you are syncing from (see tier 1 mirrors here: https://www.archlinux.org/mirrors/status/tier/1/) (tier 2 mirrors)
* An administrative contact email
* An alternative administrative contact email (optional)
